Would using amlactin reduce redness & bumps of kp?

It helps, but...: Keratosis pilaris bumps don't like to completely go away, but amlactin can help.

How can I get rid of hyperpigmentation marks of the penis? I am trying amlactin right now. I want them gone. I am very self conscious.

How can I get rid of hyperpigmentation marks of the penis? I am trying amlactin right now. I want them gone. I am very self conscious.

Let's talk: If the lesion is from a tight grip, use a looser one with lube & it will fade -- this is better overall to make you adaptable in the future. If you have freckles / natural hyperpigmented spots, many men have them and i'd be surprised to meet a woman who cares. Learn about your body talking with smart guys -- maybe even dad. Your physician can identify a pigmented spot that's worrisome. Cheers. ...Read more

Despite Keratosis Pilaris (KP), I'm getting a tattoo. Once the tattoo heals, will exfoliation (loofah/body scrub/AmLactin lotion) harm the tattoo?

Despite Keratosis Pilaris (KP), I'm getting a tattoo. Once the tattoo heals, will exfoliation (loofah/body scrub/AmLactin lotion) harm the tattoo?

Unlikely: I'm a tattoo buff and have three of my own. Get it ONLY if it's something you've wanted for several years in exactly the form you're getting. Tattoos are in the dermis and keratosis pilaris is a curious epidermal illness. I hope that your choice of design is one that's deeply meaningful, and I admire your courage in asking. ...Read more
